Way back in 1990, a group of peace-loving, tree-hugging musicians in San Diego put out a compilation record called "The Care." Out of hundreds of submissions, 9 bands were picked to appear on the album.
One member of "Musicians Who Care" - Eddie Vedder - was offered a spot on the record with his band, Bad Radio. The production team loved a Bad Radio song called "Believe You Me." The hitch was that each of the bands had to chip in $150 to help pay for the album costs (this was on vinyl). Eddie wanted to be on the record but couldn't convince his bandmates to invest the money.
So we found another band to take their place. But we did offer Eddie another chance to be on the record. The last track on the album was a We-Are-The-World-style rendition of "We Shall Overcome." He sang in the chorus and was also asked to sing one of the three leads.
Alas, he ended up bailing on the solo, but he did sing as part of "The Care." It was Eddie's first vinyl - in what came to be an amazing career.
I've got a few "The Care" albums in my garage. I'm tempted to just throw them away - unless some diehard Eddie Vedder fans out there want them. Let me know if anybody's interested. Could be the gift for someone who already has everything else Pearl Jam.
